How’s your money mindset?
In other words, when you think about money how do you feel…?
Does it make you feel like there’s never enough, that you have to work hard to earn it, that you worry about it constantly.
Maybe you feel that ‘money isn’t everything’ or ‘money isn’t important’ or that spirituality and money doesn’t mix.
Or maybe you feel very comfortable about money, you know that there is plenty for everyone and you feel that you have a healthy relationship with it.
Let’s be honest about it, money is an emotive topic! However in business you can’t function or grow your business without it, and it’s one of the main reasons why people choose to start a business in the first place.
On a basic level, money is simply the transfer of energy. The exchange of one service for another.
Money is not ‘good’ or ‘bad’ it’s actually neutral. It’s the energy the perceiver brings to it that determines it’s value. These values then form your money beliefs, and they maybe limiting you.
Many of our beliefs can be attributed to what we learned from our parents, our schools, work places, the media and society – and most, if not all of these teach you to have a ‘poverty consciousness’ mindset that promotes scarcity, lack and ‘never having enough’.
For example if you believe that ‘money is hard to come by’ then energetically this is what you will be attracting to you. When you think ‘lack’ thoughts or beliefs, the law of attraction will bring you more lack. This is because your thoughts (whether they are positive or negative) transmit a vibration that acts like a magnet, attracting more of the same into your life. It’s a case of ‘like attracts like’.
Alternatively if you believe that there is an infinite supply of money available and you adopt an abundant mindset then this is what you will attract into your life experiences.
Just over two years ago I began exploring ‘abundance’ to understand what it meant, and to apply it in all areas of my business and life. The results have been incredible. I changed my business model and rates dramatically and began to attract amazing clients who up-levelled their businesses and clients. Money began to flow from other opportunities and sources. I was gifted business courses worth £000s. I was gifted access to circles of other multi-millionaire entrepreneurs to see how they apply money mindset techniques in their business.
This year a financial windfall has enabled us move and buy our dream home. You could think that I’ve just been lucky. However I believe that by purposely developing an abundant mindset and by ‘letting go’ of my old beliefs I have been able to manifest my money intentions with more ease.
So how can you start attracting more money into your business and life?
Here are my top ten tips to help you create a positive money mindset:
1/Practice money gratitude – start by being grateful for the money you have now. If you’re not grateful then you’re creating a state of lack. Gratitude is the foundation for creating more abundance. The more you’re grateful for the more you’ll receive
2/Say ‘thank you’ for each bill you pay and feel grateful that you have the funds to pay it
3/Identify any repetitive ‘negative’ or ‘lack’ thoughts you have about money and replace them with positive affirmations
4/ Choose 1 or 2 affirmations and repeat them in the morning and before you go to bed. Place them as reminders on the screensaver on your computer, mobile device or download an affirmation app
5/ Read a wealth- related book
6/Set yourself some juicy financial goals that make you feel excited
7/Write your goals down on a wall chart or in your journal and imagine that you’ve already achieved them
8/Commit to taking any inspired action that comes to you once you’ve set your goals or intentions
9/Find communities or other like-minded people online who are committed to positively changing their money mindset.
10/ Celebrate and have gratitude for any wins that you have towards reaching your financial goals.
